Alexander Belov made two new sceneries for the Zeppeliners of you: Wainoden, one of the bases from where the Zeppelins ruled the Baltic, not far from Kaliningrad, the former Koenigsberg. These hangars still exist, I found out. After WW1 they cut them in two and rebuilt them in Riga as a Market Place. Here is a nice picture: upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/de/3/3d/Riga_Markthallen_Totale.JPG
and ;D Yes: Jambol in Bulgaria! The unique LZ-104, designated Marineluftschiff L-59, made it´s nonstop-supply run to Southeast Africa from there 103 years ago, which is a stunning story. L-59 was specially made for that one flight. The plan was to disassemble it after it´s landing. Parts of the cotton coating of the ship´s skeleton were for use as bandages. The outer coating would have been changed into tents and uniforms, the gasbags to waterproof sleepingbags, the skeleton into a radio tower and barracks. The Maybachs should produce electricity. The ship had additionally been lengthened in the dockyard in Berlin-Staaken and had an overall length of 226 m. It carried 50 tons, 21 tons of gasoline included.

As it was written on the Polish page (sorry, my Polish is not so good):
Jezierzyce (German: Seddin) near Slupsk - naval airship base. In 15.VI.1915 the shed Bertha (later - Selim) size 184*35*28 was built. Until 1945 it was used as a warehouse. Constructed by Zeppelin Hallebau GmbH. In 1929-30 this shed was used by Parseval-Naatz GmbH (to built PN.28 and PN.29 airships).
In 1916 the second shed Selinde was built (size 241*60*35m) by Gutte-Hoffnungs-Hutte GmbH. It was dismounted in 1921.
Also this base had a gas plant and underground storage for 40000 litres of fuel.
Welcome Andreas, it´s nice to see you here. I have often been to your website, which for sure is one of the rare jewels for Airship-Research. Thanks for providing this information, I hope that belov1 reads it in time as he has started work on a Tonder scenery.
According to the Tondern website the 70m-Directionfinder-Pole was on site. I can´t find any picture of it, but my guess would be opposite to the hangars in the greatest possible distance to the gas plant. That is also a perspective not shown on any of my pictures, so it might hide there? The Radiostation - 2 other big antennas - was right in the middle of the town of Tonder. I have no other details but "Center of Town".
I dropped an email to the tondern admin concerning the antennas, maybe he has answers.
And guess what Alexander: I found a used printversion of the "Zeppelins in Combat"-book in german language ("Marineluftschiffe 1912-1918"). Bought it for 15 €, had it in the mail today. Thanks again for your HU, this will be a good read!
What´s that tower next to the "Toska"? A Watertower? (Picture from the Tonder Museum)
